Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

“My only criticism, there was no socket for the kettle in the area where the in room tea/coffee area situated. And the flex wasnt long enough for the kettle to sit on a table and reach the socket. Fine for me, I put it on the floor. Maybe a danger if young children in the room”
